    Crap. Hit and run and it squirts through the left side.

    Leake is done. Really nice job today. He deserved better, that's for sure.

    Marshall in.

    Did Baker really allow Leake to pitch to guys who had 5 hits off him in this game? What is the point of having a good bullpen?

    Simmons seems to almost always pull the ball, so why is Cozart covering 2nd?

    my crooked numbers today were at 17 & 18 (triple bogey - double bogey to limp home for an 81)

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    to be fair - they were only each 2 for 3 before then

    My bad, 4 hits. Those guys proved they were seeing the ball well against Leake. Why even put him back out there?

    Probably because tha called pitch was an outside pitch, less likely to be pulled?

    The player who covers would change based on the pitch and location called, I think.

    Or perhaps it's simply the way Simmons is likely to hit a ground ball.

    Simmons was simply trying to get his bat on the ball. He was lucky to do that, and was so far infront he pulled it through the hole.
